HAL 9000 Christmas Ornament – 2001: A Spruce Odyssey

“Open the pod bay doors HAL.” “I’m sorry Dave. I can’t do that. How about opening some Christmas presents instead?” That’s what this HAL 9000 Christmas Ornament might say to you on Christmas morning. Hot on the heels of the Dave Bowman plush, Hallmark is continuing its celebration of the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey with a new keepsake ornament that lets you hang a miniature version of the HAL 9000 computer on your Christmas tree. It even has a glowing, red eye.

Aside from the neat glowing eye, this miniature HAL 9000 also plays some memorable audio clips from 2001, but we don’t know what those are yet. Hopefully, he sings “Daisy Bell” nice and slow like in the movie. Sure, he’s an evil computer, but that’s only because he was malfunctioning and possibly under orders from an alien intelligence, but he’s actually a nice guy who loves Christmas and wouldn’t hurt a soul. I think. I hope so.

The ornament will be available starting October 6 for $20. It makes you wonder what else Hallmark has in store for us this year. Hopefully, they’ll make the ship too, because I’d love to hang that on my tree right next to this one. Keep them coming, greeting card guys.
